Description Michael Catanzaro 2015-04-27 18:43:15 UTC
Description of problem: For Fedora 22, all applications installed by default need to have symbolic icons, since symbolic icons are used for the app menu.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): has no symbolic icons

Jakub Steiner made icons for LibreOffice. Please install them to {_datadir}/icons/hicolor/symbolic/apps:








As a bonus, if you can get these upstream, we can delete the high contrast LibreOffice icons in gnome-themes-standard, since they're replaced by these symbolic icons.

Thank you, and apologies for waiting so late to file this.

caolanm->dtardon: can you figure out where exactly in upstream sysui these should go.

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-05-12 15:10:40 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 22-final by Fedora user catanzaro using the blocker tracking app because:

 We're aiming for all apps installed by default in Fedora Workstation to have symbolic icons for the final release. A freeze exception to get this out would be dandy, thanks.

Comment 3 Stephen Gallagher 2015-05-13 20:58:18 UTC
Adding new static image files is quite low-risk, and the advantage for a11y is obvious. +1 FE from me.

Comment 4 Kamil Páral 2015-05-14 18:05:47 UTC
Discussed at the 2015-05-14 blocker review meeting.[1] Voted as AcceptedFreezeException - this is a low-risk change and would improve the visual consistency of the workstation live environment (and help users who actually need high-contrast icons, too)

Comment 5 Kalev Lember 2015-05-17 16:19:33 UTC
I did a libreoffice- build that adds the symbolic icons, but would be great if someone could submit them upstream as well.

Were these icons ever forwarded to LibreOffice?
